Focus On: What’s New

Ultra-lightweight projectors

Epson’s new range of high lumens 3LCD projectors includes what it claims are the world’s smallest and lightest 20,000 lumens models (EB-PU2220B / EB-PU2120W), which are 64 per cent smaller and 50 per cent lighter than their predecessor (EBL20000U).

Advantages include much reduced size and weight, easier installation and set-up, simplified maintenance and great image quality. Environmental benefits include much lower power consumption and significantly reduced packaging requirements with lower carbon footprint, as the reduced weight and size means the projectors are easier to store, transport and install, saving on warehouse space as well as labour and delivery costs.

All models include functionality that enables simple installation, stacking, lens flexibility and control. The range includes in-built processing for PC-free stacking which means two supported projectors can be stacked to double the brightness without need of external computerware. Additional features include NFC functionality for simpler installation, enabling communication between projectors and NFC-compatible Android smart devices, even when the projector is off.

Fujitsu redefines business scanning

PFU (EMEA) has unveiled the Fujitsu fi-8000 series. The devices are designed to address today’s capture challenges and drive sustainable business impact.

Aiming to set new expectations, Clear Image Capture technology enables exceptional image quality across all Fujitsu fi-8000 devices, ensures strong OCR accuracy rates, and the capability to capture a wide range of documents. The range is designed to deliver maximum uptime and real-world productivity gains thanks to enhanced multi-feed detection which prevents misfeeds and jams, and can capture up to 90 double-sided pages per minute. With the Overscan Control function automatically adjusting the scanning area to prevent image loss on slightly skewed documents, users can eliminate the need for rescanning, and ensure uninterrupted operation.

The scanners offer reliability, reduced power consumption, and consistently provide the ‘perfect feed’ thanks to Automatic Separation Control. Intelligent Sonic Paper Protection (iSOP) and patented Image Monitoring technology combine for the safe capture and protection of passports, booklets (up to 7mm thick) or mixed batches, even when labels or photos are attached.
